The Office for Student Engagement staff enjoys a close relationship with the Reed student senate. We attend senate meetings, meet with senate leadership and work with the treasury.
Student Senate Spring 2021
The student senate plays an influential role on Reed's campus. Senate is the voice of the students: its members fund student organizations, participate in campus policy-making, and work with the staff members to improve the quality of student life. If you would like to get involved or learn more about the election process, visit the Reed Student Body website or email a current senate member.
Location: The President/VP office is located in the Student Union upstairs hallway
Meetings: Zoom (link in Senate calendar), 12:300pm Tuesdays (Spring 2021)
Calendar: Meetings with agendas and office hours!

The student body treasurers run the funding process. They keep track of student organization budgets, manage student body funds, and disburse money.

This senate committee appoints students to a variety of committees and positions on campus. Serving on a committee is a good way to get involved on campus and learn how the college works. For more information on the appointments committee, and to apply for an open position visit the Handshake.
Appointments Committee chair
Interviews held Thursday nights
Appointments opportunities open on a weekly basis and are advertised Through Handshake as well as the Student Body Info newsletter. Numerous positions are available each semester, and are listed in an approximate schedule below. Students are encouraged to apply to appointed positions throughout the semester, and to re-apply to positions if not initially successful.
Student Opportunity Subsidy Committee
SOS Committee chair
Reed Student Body Senate Bylaws mandate that the interest earned from the Student Body Endowment shall go towards projects which broadly benefit the student body. A student committee, chaired by a student senator, and made up entirely of students, oversees the SOS Committee. The Fund serves students by providing direct funding to cover expenses and allow students of Reed College to continue their college career as uninhibited as possible. Whether this means paying for a better camera to pursue your hobby, obtaining a HEPA filter, or getting headphones that provide you with the full experience of your favorite artist the Student Opportunity Fund will try to provide all students with the opportunity to have a college experience unabated by inequality.
Student Engagement staff are available by appointment to Reed students, staff and faculty. Please contact our staff for assistance.
